Concept Searching Awarded Major Contracts in Oil and Gas, Professional Services, Manufacturing, Financial Research, Healthcare, Mining, and Defense


Recognized as the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software integrated with SharePoint.

Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software and developer of the Smart Content Framework™, is pleased to announce that the company has achieved revenue growth of 40% for the first half of fiscal 2013, compared to the same period in 2012.

The growth rate can be attributed to the selection and deployment of the award winning conceptClassifier for SharePoint. Clients are increasingly seeking solutions that are tightly integrated with SharePoint 2013 and Office 365, and also provide the flexibility for deployment in an on-premise, cloud based, or a hybrid environment. Although improving search has been the traditional organizational priority, Concept Searching has seen a definitive shift in the market, where organizations are now evaluating technologies based on the ability to improve multiple business process weaknesses in migration, compliance, and information security, as well as augmenting traditional search solutions. Since conceptClassifier for SharePoint is deployed as an enterprise infrastructure component, clients can leverage their investments and reduce the number of application specific solutions, resources, and time required to improve business processes, delivering a quantifiable ROI. Migration and information security are now of equal importance to improving search. The advantage of conceptClassifier for SharePoint is that it solves these challenges with one set of technologies.

The technology has been widely deployed in a variety of industries. Major contracts that contributed to first half growth include a top four global accounting and audit firm, the largest healthcare provider in the US, a global leader in the manufacture of kitchen appliances, a leading oil and gas services company, a rare earths mining company, a financial research firm, and the German military. Despite delays in the release of contracts, due to sequestration in the Federal and DoD market sectors, the US Air Force continued deployments of the technology at several medical treatment facilities to identify and take action on sensitive information identification protection, thereby complying with The Joint Commission (TJC) regulations.

“Recognized as the global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software integrated with SharePoint, diverse industries are increasingly deploying conceptClassifier to perform intelligent migration, compliance, information security, as well as search. These are areas where we have clearly led the market for the past three years. The new contract awards all involved competitive evaluations and in many cases a proof of concept. These contracts further demonstrate our market leadership position due to our unique ability to solve multiple business and application process challenges and deliver a substantial ROI,” said Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching.
